22-year-old UAE Minister of Youth, Shamma Al Mazrui is the world’s youngest minister.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Vice President and Prime Minister, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has appointed Shamma Al Mazrui as the country’s youth minister.

The announcement officially made 22-year-old Mazrui the world’s youngest minister.

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said on Twitter “After discussion with my brother Mohammed bin Zayed and the approval of the President, we hereby announce the new UAE cabinet. The new cabinet focuses on the future, youth, happiness, developing education, and combating climate change.”
Shamma holds a Master’s degree from Oxford University and a Bachelor’s degree from New York University. Sheikh Mohammed said: “We will give the council prerogatives and we expect true achievements from her and her council.” “Youth represents some half of our Arab societies, so it is only logical to give them a voice and role in governing the nation.”

Her appointment came two years after graduating from the New York University (NYU), Abu Dhabi with a degree in Economics, and just after she’d earned her Master’s from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar.

Mazrui was selected to lead the country’s younger generation and forge links between them and the country’s public entities.
